Monday and a new week begins

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Monday, May 23, 2011

This past weekend, our oldest niece on my side of the family, Amelia, graduated college from Bard College. The entire family got to be there except Nancy and I. Hated to miss it, but there was no way we could travel to New York.

Her sister, Adele, will be graduating high school from The International School Of The Americas in a couple of weeks.As I have mentioned before, she is off to Wolford College WOFFORD COLLEGE next year.

OMG - does that mean I am getting old??????????????????????? dang

Off to California on business tomorrow. Unfortunately, I don't get to come home until late Saturday so I lose a whole day of the holiday weekend...

Should get to see my Fraternity brother Jay while I am out there, and maybe one or two others whom I have not seen in dozens of years.

Guess I need to check the weather so I can pack, but it is Southern California, so what, it never rains there, right?

This week:
Jeff Massey from the band


A 12-year old singing sensation and Chicago Rock & Blues 


Cecilia Gault is only 12, but she sings like a seasoned veteran and has been writing music with the fantastic Josh Charles.

Her appearance at the Bridge To Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Benefit Concert at City Winery in New York City brought her to the attention of many. She performed her original song "Where," which she co-wrote with Charles.

You may also recognize her face from an appearance on Law & Order: SVU or her name as she is part of the Scholastic Kids Press Corps.

We will chat with Cecilia about her time writing with Josh, how she is planning on juggling such a busy schedule, and we will listen to some brand new music by Cecilia.


Then we sit with Jeff Massey (guitarist/lead vocalist) from The Steepwater Band out of the Chicagoland area.

This act came to Music On The Couch through Krista Hughes, a friend on Facebook.

Massey with Tod Bowers (bass) and Joe Winters (drums), are a solid power trio who started covering Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker and eventually began writing their own music.

With four albums already out and getting much airplay throughout the Midwest, we will be chatting with Jeff about their formation, their newest album and the busy touring schedule they have coming up.

We will listen to music from their past albums, with an outside shot of a song from the soon to be released fifth album.

We will take your calls and questions for both guests at 1.347.633.9400.
